Neurologix Presents One-Year Follow-Up Data From Phase 2 Study of NLX-P101 in Parkinson's Disease at International Neuromodulation Society 10th World Congress
Date:5/26/2011

FORT LEE, N.J., May 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Neurologix, Inc. (OTCBB: NRGX) announced the presentation today of efficacy results through one year of follow-up in patients treated as part of the Company's successful Phase 2 clinical trial for its novel, investigational gene therapy NLX-P101 for the treatment of Parkinson's disease (PD).  Improvements in the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) at 12 months for the randomized, double-blind, sham surgery-controlled trial of 45 subjects with advanced PD confirmed that patients treated with NLX-P101 experienced sustained, positive, long-term benefits. The one-year follow-up data were presented by one of the scientific co-founders of Neurologix, Michael G. Kaplitt, M.D., Ph.D., at the International Neuromodulation Society's (INS) 10th World Congress in London.

In the one-year follow-up analysis, patients treated with NLX-P101 who achieved previously defined moderate-to-large clinically-meaningful symptom improvements (> / = 9 points in off-medication UPDRS motor score), increased from 50 percent at six months to 63 percent at one year. This major subgroup of NLX-P101-treated patients experienced a mean 37 percent improvement in their symptoms after one-year, with an average improvement of 14 points in off-medication UPDRS motor score. Among all patients included in the NLX-P101 treatment group, the clinical improvements demonstrated at six months were maintained, with an average 8.2 point improvement in off-medication UPDRS motor score at 12 months compared to an 8.1 point improvement at six months. No serious adverse events (SAEs) related to the gene therapy or surgical procedure were reported in either the blinded six-month study period or the completed 12 month study phase.

"These results demonstrate that treatment with NLX-P101 improved the primary motor symptoms of Parkinson's disease in patients overall, with a majority obtaining a highly clinically meaningful improvement," said
